Fatal Head-On Collisions in New Mexico

Chaparral, NM - Isaac Garcia Killed in Head-On Crash on US-54

Because of the tremendous force involved, head-on collisions may be the worst kind of car crash possible. Unlike other types of traffic accidents, head-on collisions occur when two vehicles are moving in opposite directions. Just 2% of encounters involve head-on collisions, yet more than 10% of road fatalities do, according to statistics. Spinal injuries, brain injuries, catastrophic injuries, broken bones, and even paralysis are the most frequent types of injuries caused by head-on collisions.

Personal injury and wrongful death laws and lawsuits are quite complicated. The same laws, rules, insurance issues, time restrictions, and other limitations typically apply to both personal injury and wrongful death situations. As a result, they both fall under the jurisdiction of personal injury law in New Mexico and are handled by what are known as personal injury attorneys.

What distinguishes the two are the recoverable damages. In most cases, an Albuquerque wrongful death attorney will be able to secure much greater compensation than they would in a case involving a personal injury. There are a few situations in which the damages in cases of exceptionally serious personal injuries could be much higher due to future medical expenses and lost wages.
